Turning old books into folding art. The craftsmanship of paper sculpture.
D. Hinklay is a book folding artist from Japan. Since his childhood, he has been passionate about origami and mastered book folding technique by self-learning. In 2013, he founded OruFun, a style of origami combines computer technology with traditional origami to transform old books into three-dimensional artwork.
To pay respect to traditional origami, he never cut any pages in the books. Each book sculpture is built only by folding the pages to shape the contour of the image. His process emphasizes precision and utilizes computer technology to assist him in making marks on paper by hand down to millimeter points.
Known for his street culture aesthetic, D. Hinklay often features popular icons and provocative gestures to state his bold messages. With pop culture symbolism, he takes ancient artistry to a new level of expression.
OruFun has received it's worldwide exposure on the internet and selling his creations through his online platform. Besides the finished work, he also provides tutorials and customization. Memes has the honor to exhibit his third solo show in Taiwan and present his mastery to Taiwanese audience.
